Some 40 people in Nixa showed up for a monthly school meeting that's called 'Koffee With Kleinsmith." The topic for October was man-made drugs and how devastating they can be to a community.
Christian County Juvenile Officer Perry Barnes was on-hand to talk about the kids he's seeing come through the system, most are between the ages of 12 and 16.
K-2, bath salts and prescription medications are a problem time and again. KTTS Assistant News Director Nancy Simpson asked him if parents are really getting the messsage.
Kendra Bogner, a mom of three from Nixa, says she learned the new drugs are colorful, look like candy and appear harmless. The kids don't believe they'll get hurt.
Authorities say what the neighbor kid is exposed to can end up trickling down to your kids, so we should all be concerned.
